Better pump sl-68 II or empire trracer ?

I'm looking into a beginner milsim pump and these are the two that I'm looking into. So far what I don't like about the trracer is velocity adjuster and the noise when you pump the gun.
The sl-68II doesn't have a detent which I think is stupid but I like the action better when you pump it. The trracer as a auto cocker threaded barrel that you can change really easily which is nice.

Thanks Im liking that the in the sl-68 II you put your air tank in the bottem of the handle because I have an empire 3000 psi air tank and if I put that on the trracer I'm scared it will be really un balanced and I dont have the money to buy a smaller air tank since I'm only 12.

Age really does not have anything do do with you not being able to buy a tank. I am 14 and I just bought a Ninja 13ci for my pump.

I think what he was saying was that he doesn't have the money cause he's too young to have a job.
IMHO, the Trracer is more customizable. You can buy a bottomline kit and have the tank at the same spot as the SL-68. You can hitman mod it, throw on a scope and bipod for shooting First Strikes (which the SL-68 doesn't shoot, only a big deal if you play woodsball). I would recommend the Trracer. Oh, and the velocity adjuster is not a big deal, you just get a couple of strange looks when you use it. Also, you get used to the sound, and it's actually nice just cause its a bit quieter than other markers.

That is what I thought.

You should look at some used CCI Phantoms. They perform much better and are made with a much higher quality than the Trracer.
